Abstract:This dissertation investigated change in overall justice perceptions over time and several dynamic predictors that influence such change. Using event sampling methodology, employees were sampled one week prior to beginning a new job with a new organization, and then weekly for four months. Multi-group confirmatory factor analysis revealed no change in individuals’ conceptualization of overall organizational justice (i.e., no beta and gamma change was detected). A quadratic curve was detected via multilevel modeling, representing the average participant’s overall justice trajectory over time. Overall justice showed significant lagged effects. Incidental affect (i.e., contextual affect unrelated to justice), and the average event-based justice evaluations were found to co-vary with overall organizational justice over time. Person-mean level contextual affect and event-based justice evaluations also predicted between-person variations in overall organizational justice. Contrary to the peak-end rule, the person means of justice evaluations and affective reactions were better predictors of overall justice than the peaks (the most unfair ratings, and most extreme affective reactions). Limitations and implications for future research are discussed.
